Subject: Feb 1 free webinar - Open Online Math Homework

The first CCCOER 2012 webinar TOMORROW on Open Online Math Homework.  It is scheduled for 10:00 am pacific on cccconfer but all the information about it is below.
Come join us for the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources January Webinar with David Lippman, Math professor from Pierce Community College and James Sousa, Math Professor from  Phoenix Community College, on the open online math homework system (MyOpenMath.com) that David and other community college faculty have developed for faculty and students to use with open textbooks.For math teachers, a free and open textbook is great, but they can be hard to find, and hard to adopt if you're used to having publisher-provided online homework.  In this webinar, David Lippman from Pierce College will introduce Opentextbookstore.com and MyOpenMath.com. Opentextbookstore.com provides a short list of open textbooks covering algebra through calculus that are ready-to-adopt, are available in printed form, and often have additional ancillaries available.  

For many of these books, MyOpenMath.com provides free, online, algorithmically generated homework, similar to WebAssign, which can be used by instructors with their classes, or by students for self-study. Many even include video lessons, classroom worksheets, and other resources.  David will share the precalculus courses he created and his experiences using them in his classes.  James Sousa from Phoenix College will share the pre-algebra and trig courses he created and his experiences using them in his classes.
